The Reliance AGM 2022 then talked about Jio AirFiber (5G wifi hotspot). It will have breakthrough increases in broadband speed (1 Gbps) and drastically lower latency. Also it promises ultra-high fiber-like speed over the air without any wires. The aim here is to be real easy & quick to connect your home or office to Gigabit-speed Internet.
